Parolee arrested following traffic stop | Crime
A traffic stop early Thursday morning ended with a parolee back behind bars on felony drug charges.
Patrick Alexander Jefferson, 34, of Jonesboro was arrested after police say they found drug paraphernalia in his car.
According to Officer Jacob Daffron’s initial report, he spotted Jefferson run a stop sign at the intersection of Wilkins Avenue and Market Place Drive.
After pulling Jefferson over, Officer Daffron reported smelling “burnt marijuana coming from the inside of the vehicle.”
Daffron searched the car and found a sock in the driver’s side floorboard. Inside the sock, Daffron said he found a glass pipe used to smoke meth and straw used to snort narcotics wrapped in a paper towel.
Jefferson was arrested and taken to the Craighead County Detention Center where he was charged with felony possession of drug paraphernalia. A felony hold was also placed on Jefferson for violating his parole. He was also cited for running a stop sign and driving with a suspended license.
